On Monday, July 25, colossal creatures will greet Greensboro Science Center (GSC) visitors in a temporary exhibit called Destination: Dinosaur! This exhibit will be open for about one year, while the existing dinosaur gallery is transformed into Prehistoric Passages: Realm of the Dragons.

The exhibit offers visitors a sneak peek at dinosaurs that will eventually roam through the center's zoo featuring full-bodied replicas of prehistoric predators such as Tyrannosaurs Rex, Allosaurus and Spinosaurus.

The exhibit will also have an area devoted to prehistoric play and offer young paleontologists the chance to imagine how dinosaurs lived and interacted millions of years ago.

Destination: Dinosaur! will open to Greensboro Science Center Members only from 9 a.m.-noon on Monday, July 25. At noon, the exhibit will be open to all GSC visitors.

Admission to Destination: Dinosaur! is included with general admission to the Greensboro Science Center. General admission is $12.50 for adults ages 14-64, $11.50 for children ages 3-13, and $11.50 for seniors ages 65+. Children 2 and under and Greensboro Science Center Members are free.

Over the course of the next year, the GSC's existing dinosaur gallery will be completely renovated to create an immersive environment for learning about the ancient earth. State-of-the-art technology will coincide with artifacts, animals (komodo dragons), and dinosaur replicas to tell the story of Earth's early existence. Prehistoric Passages is currently expected to open Fall 2017.
